Fuel Pump constant buzzing with key off

I've been doing the poor man trick of turning the key on and off a couple times to avoid long cranking times for about two years now. A few days ago I was driving and my jeep died so I took the key out and the fuel pump was constantly buzzing. The only way I cold get it to shut off was to disconnect the battery. Now it will start and only run for a minute or two before it kills and the fuel pump stays on. Does this mean I need a new pump or could it be something else? Thanks for the help

Relays are cheaper than fuel pumps, try a new relay.
